SLCC Opens New Plastics Lab


Salt Lake Community College has opened a new Plastics Lab at its Meadowbrook Campus. A boon to both students and local manufactures in the Plastics Injection Molding industry. 

SLCC’s new lab will contain the newest equipment in the industry, including a RoboShot 110-ton Injection Molding Machine that was donated by BD Medical, an objet photo-polymer 3-D Printer, and a steel negative part molddonated by BARD Access Systems.

“We depend on industry support in all these areas to make this program a success,” said Mark Poole, SLCC Corporate Solutions director.  “We are very grateful for the high quality of these donations. Cooperation between industry and academia benefits all involved, and all of us at SLCC will work to improve the Plastics Injection Molding workforce and industry.” 

With the addition of the Objet 3-D printer and other machining and milling equipment, the Plastic lab now takes products from the concept to the prototype to the production stage. As a result, students and companies can use the facility to:
  • design a product using CAD software
  • print a prototype of the product on the Objet 3-D printer
  • print a negative mold of the product on the Objet 3-D printer
  • manufacture a small-number run of the product on the plastics injection machine
  • mill a final version of the mold in steel

Salt Lake Community College’s annual Undergraduate Projects, Performances, Presentations, and Research Conference (UP3RC) is set to take place on April 2, at the Taylorsville Redwood Campus, offering students a chance to showcase their academic achievements, fostering a culture of intellectual exchange.  The UP3RC is an annual event designed to celebrate and highlight the academic accomplishments of undergraduate students. It provides a supportive environment for students to share their work, hone their presentations skills, receive constructive feedback, and engage in meaningful discussions with their peers and faculty. All SLCC departments and programs, including faculty and staff, are encouraged to support and visit the day of the event. Students with their poster from last year's UPRC event “The goal of this event is to make sure every school and student is given the opportunity to participate,” says Dr. Kamal Bewar, interim director of the STEM Learning Center, who is chairin

HB 261 and HB 257 Frequently Asked Questions

Dear Faculty, Staff and Students: The Utah Legislature recently passed two bills that significantly impact higher education:  HB 261  Equal Opportunity Initiatives and HB  257  Sex-Based Designations for Privacy, Anti-Bullying, and Women’s Opportunities. Salt Lake Community College is deeply committed to our students, faculty, and staff. We strive to be a place where all are welcomed and respected. While there are many unknowns about the ultimate effect these bills will have on some student and staff support programs, be assured that SLCC will maintain an environment where all can find success and feel a sense of belonging. In the coming months, college leadership will work to gain clarity and determine the changes necessary for legislative compliance. We will also share this information as it becomes available.  We realize that during this time, some in our college community may feel unsettled and stressed. We encourage you to make use of available SLCC resources designed to support y

The Center for Prior Learning Receives an Honorable Mention

Today, SLCC's Credit for Prior Learning department received an Honorable Mention from the  Council for Adult and Experiential Learning (CAEL ) and the  Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education  for its intentional approach and for expanding student options to receive credit for prior learning.  Credit for Prior Learning (CPL)  allows students to obtain college credit for knowledge and skills acquired outside of the traditional academic environment. This is exceptionally beneficial for adult learners, who, according to CAEL, have a 17% higher chance of graduating compared to those adults who don’t earn credits through prior learning programs. The CPL department at SLCC was created in 2020 and since then the volume of students served has grown as the department continues to expand. To be eligible for CPL, students must be working towards a degree, certificate, or apprenticeship. Director of Credit for Prior Learning at SLCC, Andrea Tipton, mentioned feeling stunned and fla
